Sharing photo albums

Members can upload photos and display them in albums on their profile. In order to do this, you must first enable and configure photo albums in your profile.

Album directory

You must first log-in. Clicking the "Photo albums" link will display icons for all of the albums as well as their album total and what their maximum amount allowed is (if any).

Under this will be links to all albums - the name of the album plus the number of pictures in that album. A picture from each album can be designated as the "cover" and is used as an icon for that album.

Creating an album

If the member is viewing their own profile they will be able to create an album by clicking on Add album. Members must create an album before they can upload any pictures.

  • Title (required) - This will be displayed under the cover for the album and should identify its contents. Do not include a dot or period at the end of the album title.
  • Description - This displays as a subheading in the album itself.

The admin can limit the number of albums that a member can create. Once that number has been reached the member will be unable to create any more albums unless they delete one of their existing ones. They can continue to add pictures to their albums even if they have reached their album limit.

Uploading and managing photos

In each album, the member will have the following actions available to them:

Upload photos - The member can upload up to five (5) photos at a time. They must be in either jpg, gif, png or tif format. As well, each album can have a maximum of fifty (50) photos
Edit details - They can edit or change the name and description of the album.
Delete album - Note This will also delete any photos that are in the album.

Any picture that has a border around it is the cover for that photo album and will be displayed as an icon for that album on the member's profile.

Moving the mouse pointer over any picture gives the member the ability to either Set as cover (if it is not already) or Delete the photo.

Captioning photos

Clicking on any photo will open it in full size. Under the photo will be a link "Add caption" where you can enter a brief description that will be visible to people who look at. At the top of the page will be buttons to let you make the photo the cover for the album or to delete it.
